OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – The Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum is unveiling $10 million worth of new exhibits, including artifacts like a sign from the Kansas hotel where convicted bomber Timothy McVeigh stayed before the bombing.

The memorial is planning to hold a grand-reopening Thursday in downtown Oklahoma City to celebrate enhancements that began one year ago.

The museum has added 35 new interactive exhibits on the investigation, first responders on the scene, and journalists who covered the bombing on April 19, 1995, that killed 168 people and injured hundreds more.

Among the new artifacts is a 15-foot-tall sign from the Dreamland Hotel near Junction City, Kansas.

Memorial officials also are expected to announce plans for this year’s 20th anniversary of the bombing.
